Kuna school district holds first open negotiation session
On Monday, I sat in on the first open meeting of the negotiation sessions for the Kuna teachers contract. Present were school board members Ginny Greger and Kevin Gifford, Superintendent Jay Hummel, business manager Bryan Fletcher and teachers Josh Noteboom, Dan Blitman, Jen Wright, Matt Krumm and Stacee Marshall. Most of the meeting was spent trying to lay out which parts of the contract are up for negotiation, which are no longer part of negotiations and which parts need legal clarification based on new state laws. The next scheduled meeting is at 4 p.m. on Tuesday, April 26, at the district office, 711 E. Porter Road.
